FHA Home Loans

What are FHA Home Loans?

FHA loans, are loans that are insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Typically, these loans have lower interest rates, and can be more inclusive when it comes to borrowers being qualified. Since they are backed by the government, and require the borrower to obtain mortgage insurance and an appraisal, the rates on FHA loans tend to be lower than other products.
